Program Admission

The field of industrial-organizational psychology is centered on understanding work from a psychological perspective.  Through the program, students are trained in I-O psychology theories and research methods, studying application in work settings such as industry and government. Students develop expertise in a variety of areas, including personnel assessment and selection, training and development, performance appraisal, motivation, team performance and leadership.

Admission to the MSIO Program is competitive and selective. Applicants who are admitted typically have a GPA of 3.0 or above and/or GRE scores that exceed the minimum scores required for admission to the College of Graduate Studies. A variety of factors are taken into account in MSIO admissions, including all submitted materials and the number of available openings in the program.
